It shocks me that most men do not know to let their female dining companions lead the way. It isnt old fashioned, it's merely polite. More cotillions necessary.

A sign resides in my office, it reads: You can never be overdressed or overeducated. Of course, it is not an infallible maxim....white tie to a beach party, etc (I can't think of a genuine reason to limit one's education). I used to stick out, but now people don't notice, and now I'm the dept head, so so what if they do?

I did remember to time it and it was 3 minutes give or take (I was using the time shown on the Today Show as reference). Sleeves, front panels, back, collar. Done. My shirts hang to dry so are never in a terribly wrinkled condition.
I'll try and remember to time myself this morning, but I'm pretty sure it's a 2 to 3 min job, so I'm shocked it's such an onerous burden to so many.
